I have some problemns with smbclient from samba release 2.0.5a conneting
to NT server 3.51. The problem is that when i do a mget of a directory
with many files ( more than 5000 ) some files are random skipped and not

For a test i wrote a script that does 100 times an 'ls' of a directory.
and do a diff on the output. About 10 of the 100 diff's are missing
